Aquaponics Systems

VR International Brings all our expertise to implement sustainable aquaponics based projects. As RAS system has already gained population in India, market is now demanding healthy plant as well as protein based diet

 

   It is well known that Aquaponics based plants are free from harmful plant fertilizer and more healthy. Similarly aquaponics fish as easily marketable in compare to normal fish. 

here in VR International we are building client based system irrespective of size. Our focus is to be fit under client budget and provide them ROI based solution. 

Aquaponics


Aquaponics is the integration of recirculating aquaculture and hydroponics in one production system. In an aquaponic unit, water from the fish tank cycles through filters, plant grow beds and then back to the fish . In the filters, the fish wastes is removed from the water, first using a mechanical filter that removes the solid wasteand then through a biofilter that processes the dissolved wastes. The biofilter provides a location for bacteria to convert ammonia, which is toxic for fish, into nitrate, a more accessible nutrient for plants. plants uptake these nutrients, and finally the water returns to the fish tank purified. This process allows the fish, plants, and bacteria to thrive symbiotically and to work together to create a healthy growing environment for each other, provided that the system is properly balanced.

Our Role

 

VR INTERNATIONAL Design, Supplies, and build Aquaponics growing  systems. We provide already proven and implemented technologies at affordable costing to make projects viable. Our Scope of work shall include designing, detailing, drawing, procurement and supply of components of Aquaponics as per the system description. The system Comprises of various units under listed as Mechanical, Instrumentation and Electrical.

 

Our Technology is based on guidelines and recommendations of FAO which is published in FAO FISHERIES AND AQUACULTURE TECHNICAL PAPER. Other Guideline, NHB’s recommendations and IS : 14462.

Advantage of Aquaponics 

  • Sustainable and intensive food production system.

  • Two agricultural products (fish and vegetables) are produced from one nitrogen source

  • Extremely water efficient.

  • Does not require soil.

  • Does not use fertilizers or chemical pesticides.

  • Higher yields and qualitative production.

  • Organic􀀎like management and production.

  • Higher level of biosecurity and lower risks from outer contaminants.

  • Higher control on production leading to lower losses.

  • Can be used on non􀀎arable land such as deserts, degraded soil or salty, sandy islands.

  • Creates little waste.
